Thousands of dollars pouring in for Ice Cream Dude after News 4 story airs

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — We first introduced you to James Karagiannis a few weeks ago – he’s the cyclist distributing ice cream to kids in need all through donations.

When we first talked with him, James had received around $3000 in donations; now, it’s up to $30,000 and increasing.

“We’re going to stay true to what we said we’re going to do,” said Karagiannis. “I’m going to give it to kids who don’t have a dollar. I mean, I don’t think we’ll be able to hand out that much ice cream this year so if that takes us a couple years to do it, we’re going to do it.”

If you want to donate and help these kids who cannot afford ice cream, you can visit the Ice Creamcycle page here. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
